    I just bought a Canon EOS1000D and figured it worked fine, but now i want to go deeper in the hobby. I was on this shop where they sold a objective (75-300mm), idk if it is img stabilizer in it. It costs around 1750Kr (Kr= Norwegian monney) or ca. 257.72$
    Some1 know if this is something usefull?:gun: :waiting:

    The 75-300 is basic consumer glass. For about $550US,( if your budget can afford it) the 70-300 IS is a great lens that exceeds the 75-300 in IQ hands down. Sharper, better color, better contrast.

    Agreed. The 70-300mm IS USM is a far FAR better lens with image stabilization, near-silent focusing, much better optics, and construction.

    ^ I saw a side by side a guy did on another forum with his 70-300 and 70-200 2.8L, non IS at 100mm and you had to look back and forth a few times to see the difference. The L wasn't any sharper, but colors were a tad more saturated, and contrast was slightly "poppier". And it's $800 more. The 70-300 is really under rated in my book. I may sell my very average 18-200IS and get a 70-300.

    Forgot to mention the camera was a 7D. ;)
